A new article on PRP was published in the Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine from the Arthritis & Osteoporosis Center of Maryland. The piece discusses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cells for management of osteoarthritis. The authors describe a synergistic phenomenon when combining the stem cells with PRP. The platelets help direct the stem cells to proliferate and coordinate repair of damaged cells. I expect more & more literature to emerge on the use of PRP & stem cells to address common orthopaedic injuries.
At The Orthohealing Center we will be publishing our data on Knee Osteoarthritis treated with PRP very soon, stay tuned.
